FDA Certification of your Laser Enclosure
9 May 2019
Your company has acquired a laser that you now need to build an enclosure for. When asking for quotes for a laser enclosure, be sure to ask if they come with FDA Certification. If not, move on. That is not something you want to tackle yourself, unless you are already familiar with FDA policies. RT Technologies is privileged to have a Board Certified Laser Safety Officer on our staff who is on the Board of Directors of the Laser Institute of America, and a Commissioner on the Board of Laser Safety. He provides both US and International/IEC laser safety guidance. For Enclosures on laser products (something you are building for someone else – a group to group in your own company or outside sales) certification with the FDA is MANDATORY.
RT Technologies is with you every step of the way during the laser enclosure process – from an idea in your head, to the certified finished product. Having a project turn-key will save you time, money, and reduce the amount of headaches from reading up on ANSI, Laser Policy Notices, US safety requirements etc.
Our CLSO is also available for consulting and training. He offers over the phone consulting, as well as in person consulting and training.
Enclosures can be outfitted to fit your needs. We have supplied but are not limited to the following options:
- Enclosures with a reinforced roof (mezzanine), which can be used as storage space
- Removable / retractable roofs
- Customized doors and conveyors
- Revolving wall that spins around to move machinery in and out
When you need an enclosure for your new laser, please give us a call. Getting started is simple. We will have you fill out an enclosure worksheet and give you a budgetary quote. This is usually followed up with a phone call to address any questions or concerns you may have.
We look forward to working with you.
